Bonnard, Pierre
Summer in Normandy. Circa 1912

This work belongs to the flowering of Bonnards mature decorative manner, in which the element of colours and emotions is combined with subtle feeling and true lyricism. It was painted from the panoramic terrace of the artist's villa Ma Roulotte, not far from Vernon. Bonnard has also included members of his family and his favourite pets (the dog Ubu on the lap of the lady in the chaiselongue).
